Welcome to Messack Holidays - luxury self catering on the Roseland

Hello! Welcome to Messack Holidays. We are the Lucas family and we would love to welcome you to this beautiful corner of Cornwall. We can offer two fully-equipped semi-detached cottages in a spectacular location on the Roseland Peninsula. Skiber (sleeps 4) and Karadow (sleeps 6) sit in the grounds of our home on the Messack promontory - located just between St Just Creek on one side and the safe sailing waters of the Carrick Roads on the other. Both cottages have hot tubs, wi-fi and are dog-friendly. A haven for families, walkers, bird watchers or anyone who just wants to get away from it all.

The cottages are well away from busy roads yet only 10 minutes' drive from the pubs and restaurants of St Mawes and Portscatho or the Hidden Hut at Rosevine.  They are within a short drive of beaches such as Pendower, Carne, Porthcurnick, Towan and others. There are beautiful walks starting directly from the cottages. They are ideally positioned for visits to Eden, Trelissick, Heligan and many National Trust gardens and houses throughout Cornwall. Truro and Falmouth are a 30-minute drive (via the King Harry ferry).

Skiber and Karadow were renovated throughout in 2019 and offer a fully-equipped kitchen, upgraded bathrooms, wifi and SMART TVs. Each has its own enclosed, decked terrace with hot tub. There is shared access to a large lawned area, with plenty of space for children to run off steam. There is also a dedicated area for our four-legged friends. There is ample parking.

We welcome families and can provide travel cots and high-chairs. Both cottages can be fitted with stair-gates and night lights for the little ones. As a family with young children, we may well have some of the other child-related paraphernalia you need, including buggies, bottle warmers and bottles. Let us know if there is something specific.

Cottages are available to non-smokers only. We can welcome up to two pets. Sorry - but the cottages are not appropriate for stag- or hen-parties or other groups of single, young people (we might set the kids on you...)

 

Arrival & departure: Saturdays. Skiber is available from 5pm with check out at 9am; Karadow is available from 5pm with check out at 9am on departure day.

In 2018, we gave up the day job and moved out West to start a new life. Can it be done? Was it all worth it? Hear more about our story in this podcast from Action Packed Travel.
